More Water For California: New Enormous Water Works Programs Are Expensive

Dr. Jeff Masters, April 18, 2014

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

From November 2013 - January 2014, a remarkably extreme jet stream pattern set up over North America, bringing the infamous "Polar Vortex" of cold air to the Midwest and Eastern U.S., and a "Ridiculously Resilient Ridge" of high pressure over California, which brought the worst winter drought conditions ever recorded to that state. A new study by Utah State scientist S.-Y. Simon Wang found that this jet stream pattern was the most extreme on record, and likely could not have grown so extreme without the influence of human-caused global warming.

The period of time they are calling ‘winter’ is for the six months of October 2013 through 2014. Here are a few details.

Shelter and transportation accessibility are of paramount importance to people with disabilities in disaster situations. All too often in recent events these considerations have gone unaddressed...putting the lives of people with disabilities in grave danger. For shelter operators, addressing the needs of people living with disabilities can be a complex and confusing issue.

Cool and stormy weather pattern continues through mid March

Zachary Labe, March 12, 2014

Northeast Weather Analyst

A wintry pattern will continue as a series of troughs rotate through the Northeast over the next two weeks. Several shortwaves will have the potential to amplify into larger storm systems. A period of interest for winter weather revolves around St. Patrick's Day. Stay tuned!
